Hello, Angel7dust, and welcome :) to Geeks to Go!

Please do not change anything. My recommendation is to leave this alone. Sorry for the bad news, but this is not a good idea. Thank you!

Much of the processes you posted pertain to Windows. I do not recommend to end any processes.

This is the best approach.

Hello Angel7dust

I agree with Broni and DragonMaster Jay

I can see very few processes that can be stopped from starting at start-up and be loaded manually when needed... ( Not related to windows or the operation of your computer itself )

These can be turned off
AppleMobileDeviceService.exe <<-- Mobile device related ( Obviously lol )
mDNSResponder.exe <-- component of the Apple Service
iTunesHelper.exe <-- allows you to play MP3's, This process speeds up iTunes when it starts, and the program also monitors for connected iPod devices

May i ask..., Do you connect an IPOD to this computer ?

Do you connect an Mobile Device to this computer ?

If the answere is yes , best to leave them :)

But the very few process's will have VERY minimal increase in performance...

Hence the reason I'm agreeing with Broni and DragonMaster Jay , Just leave them alone :)

Thank you , sorry for any inconvenience caused...

Best of luck
&
Happy computing

Anthony19
